Das RennTreffen 2017
What’s better than a street full of new and vintage Porsche ? How about a street full on an amazing winter afternoon in South Miami ! Having been a South Florida resident for a little over three years now, I already find that I tend to take the nice weather for granted at times. I mean, we’re almost always promised to wake up to temps above 75 through winter and rarely does it fall below 80 on most weeks. Today happened to be one of those days at the Das Renn Treffen 2017 event, that you just have to wonder why people actually live in cold climate…haha. Okay okay I guess snow is fun sometimes, I just prefer to be selective on my exposure to it.
“Born in 2015, Das Renn Treffen follows in the wake of VolksBlast (VOLKSBLAST.COM) – a nearly 20-year- old Vintage Volkswagen Show that was formed by members of the Palmetto Bugs and Wide Five VW car clubs. Originally created to help raise funds for local charities, many of the members who also donated time building houses for Habitat for Humanity realized what an incredible impact an official show could have on the community. VolksBlast had its first show in 1998 in the First National Bank of South Miami parking lot and drew 60 participants and over 100 spectators. Today, the show plays host to over 250 vehicles and 10,000+ spectators from all around the country and has helped to raise over $120,000 since it’s inception. Entering its third year, Das Renn Treffen is quickly becoming the largest and most anticipated Porsche event on the eastern seaboard. Attracting those who’s hearts beat faster at the sight of the Porsche crest, along with their friends and families, the future of Das Renn Treffen is bright.”
“Hosted at the shops of Sunset Place in the heart of South Miami,
Das Renn Treffen is the biggest Porsche gathering and car show that South Florida has ever seen.
With more than 250 Porsche automobiles honoring the Porsche design concept that design follows function, Das Renn Treffen attracts enthusiasts from around the world and doubles as a community fundraiser for local charities and non-profit organizations.”
In February 2017, Das Renn Treffen continues to grow from a one-day event to a three-day festival, celebrating everything that represents the Porsche brand. Show-goers can expect to witness a wide selection of daily drivers, ultra-rare models, and historical Porsche race cars along with great live music, food, and parts vendors. While the precious steel is always a sight to see, the amazing community that comes together to share their stories and passion of the Porsche brand is what has made Das Renn Treffen such an incredible success. Recognizing automotive greatness and helping to support local charities and non-profit organizations is truly what Das Renn Treffen is all about.”
